to the political cliche of low-hanging fruit is something so cartoon h cartoonishly insensitive, so cartoonishly villainous, you then bring upon us a second political cliche. you have jumped the shark. blocking voluntary efforts by people to get rid of their own guns because they want to voluntarily? that is an exercise in shark jumping. this is the sort of thing that might make sense internally to the nra when they talk about this amongsts, but the rest of the the country are not picking a fight, but looking for problem solving, nonconfrontational ways to help each other out. trying to block the voluntary tucson gun buy-back program does not make sense. the whole reason gun policy is supposed to be seen as so intractable, so unreformable, so politically untouchable and not in america is that the national rifle association has created a mystique about themselves, a mystique about their own power that is supposed to caution anyone who might want to reform gun laws that it just cannot be done. no matter who we are, no matter where we live, no matter how or why we might want to reform our gun laws,
to get out? >> that's the cliche. they are already getting in. we have to answer whether it is a good idea. i think it is one of the best places for yield if you can't get into real estate. but the bottom line is this. tyler, i met new summer of 2007 when the vix was last this low and i remember doing dow 14,000 stories in the fall. and i remember what happened after that. now i'm not saying cliches are always true, but that's the cautionary tale and that's what i saw five years ago. >> 2007. wow. time goes o by. did you hear this, lance armstrong admitted to oprah winfrey he used peds and cheated his way to seven tour de france titles. will this admission, brian, help restore his brand? of course, this is a steroid-free and hormone-free hour at "power lunch." >> yes. as can you tell, my pipes aren't quite what they used to be. his brand, according to the people i talked to, is pretty much destroyed. was not helped by last night. i talked to one sports agent who represent olympic athletes and he said, no way will he ever make another dollar off himself but said every office he goes in
. they were not about the self-proclaimed, self fulfilling cliche of the gun lobby's power. it was not the nra is so powerful. he paid tribute to the power of the american people to influence congress to say yes to some things that even congress is not inclined to say yes to. the only way we can change is if the american people demand it. and that doesn't mean from just certain parts of the country. we're going to need voices in those areas and those congressional districts where the tradition of gun ownership is strong to speak up. this will not happen unless the american people demand it. if parents and teachers, police officers and pastors, if hunters and sportsman if every american stands up and says enough, we suffered too much pain and care too much about our children to allow this to continue, then change will come. you know, in the letter that julia wrote me, she said i know that laws have to be passed by congress. but i beg you to try very hardly. julie, i will try very hard. but she's right. the most important changes we can make depend on congressional action. they need to bring the
conference today not only didn't include any talk of compromise, but he wheeled out the old nasty cliches about the republicans not caring about the old and the sick. let's welcome a former obama campaign aide joining our panel. kate obenshain and robert costa. kate, besides talking about how republicans hate the sick, hate the young, hate everybody -- >> disabled. >> yeah, disabled. sorry about that. he also made sure to include that he wants more taxes. more taxes. obama care taxes are already kicking in. we just had a tax increase on investors and small businesses. can you beat that, more taxes? >> this should come as a surprise to nobody, larry. obama's goal is not some sound economy when he -- as his legacy, his goal is as to fundamentally transform america where we have a vastly expanded size of government. he won't talk about cuts except little ones on the side. but he wants to continue to expand government. he doesn't care about deficits. he's not going to deal on this. >> you know, a couple of times during the news conference, i was interested in this. president obama said to con
't mean to over use the cliche, but have the conversation. it is not enough to turn off the news and walk away from the tv and go, oh, that stinks. not this time. >> and it is not just republican, democratic, independent. that is the thing that has just blown my mind. that i feel like it is really not about your party right now. >> it is not, it is not. >> i really feel like it is about our children. so i would say that at this moment, that i -- my gut is telling me that we have to continue to talk about the children. they are the future of this country. and it is going to -- you know, they're going to be the next set of parents. and they would want the set of things we want. protection and safety. and you know. i think that is -- >> you know there are much larger cultural and societal issues here. i -- we can't even begin to address those because they're just so enormous. but you have to start somewhere. you have to start somewhere. and i love the idea that this group has put forward saying that sandy hook, you know, a new town will be remembered not for the tragedy but for what started
of a cliche that he looked you in the eyes and says no, but in all the time i had known him, he was always very adamant and aggressive in saying he hadn't dop doped. we were having a conversation, toward the end of all this, and i said, look, i got to tell you, i think you have doped. i'm pretty sure you have doped, and i'm at a point where i have to say something pretty soon. and he didn't deny doping. and there was -- you know, it sounds a little weird, but in context, there was just a moment where i was like, oh, he really did it. and that was -- there were plenty of other, you know, plenty of other people who had spoken up. there was always a lot of evidence, but that was the moment where i absolutely knew he had doped. >> what was his response to that cover story? >> he was mad. i got sort of the angry, screaming phone call. and you know, it's just -- of course, i would. and i thought that would be the last time i would ever talk to him. and then maybe three or four months later, we started having communication again, which i also found fascinating. >> betsy andruw, she was in a hospi
're across the street from here is -- it is almost cliche, but it is amazing. there is one building that is completely destroyed. another building that is damaged, but not destroyed at all. and just on the other side of that, completely destroyed another building. this tornado came through here and just was very selective, but completely devastating in the targets it found. >> it is almost like it sounds like that zigzag we hear so often when we talk about tornadoes. miguel, thank you so much. george, let me bring you in. i hope you have a monitor. have you seen pictures of this, this tornado we have been showing out of adairsville, georgia? >> well, i've seen a few clips from the adairsville tornado and it looks like something that i would be used to seeing in kansas, in may. so it is very ahtypical for thi time of year. but we occasionally get deep south tornado outbreaks in late january, february. they tend to be fast moving storms and therefore quite dangerous. but they do happen. and people that live in that part of the country really do need to watch it pretty much year round.
events, even though the audiences are dropping. so you've heard the cliche about analog dollars and digital dimes, now mobile pennies. as more and more of the eyeballs and the audience is going to mobile, the ability to monetize it becomes even more challenging. so facebook and google and a lot of companies have really a great mobile strategy. i'm not sure that the true big dollars are going to be there -- >> they've got to be there at some point, don't they? if that's the way people are digesting content? >> i don't know if you're going to be able to monetize it to the same degree that you were able to monetize it in the old business. >> what does that mean? >> i think what it means is it's a great time to be a consumer. the consumers will have more choices to get their content than they ever had before. they'll have a ball. the question is, even the content owners. it's not quite as easy to just say, well, gee, i have this content and i can then sell it across all of these platforms. you know? the people who are the big winners are the nfl, you know, people like that. what the
